  1. Hello, I posted this question on [someforum].com but got some conflicting advice, so wanted to repost here. I have a 5" comet goldfish named Kaji in a 36 gallon bowfront tank measuring 24"L x 15"W x 21"H. It has two HOB filters, an Aqueon Quietflow 30 and a Fluval Aquaclear 50, and a 20" bubbled wand attached to a powerful airpump. There are no other fish or living creatures and no live plants in the tank. Kaji is very active, has a very good appetite and his gills fins, etc. appear very healthy as far as I can tell. However, ever since I introduced him into this tank (about 2 months ago) he has been going to the surface for quick gulps of air too often (about once every 5-10 minutes, sometimes more, sometimes less). He doesn't hang at the top or sip air constantly, he just takes a gulp then goes back to searching for food or whatever he was doing. The only other strange behavior I can think of is that now that he is in the larger tank, he sleeps hovering a couple inches above the gravel instead of lower down right on top of the gravel. To give you some background, I got Kaji 6 months ago when he was about 1.5". He was an unexpected "gift" that one of my friends won from a fair. Since I didn't have time to prepare for him, the first 4 months I had to put him in an uncycled 5.5 gal aquarium, where he lived by himself. In the first 2 weeks I got him, despite frequent water changes, he developed fin rot and popeye, but he made a full recovery after I treated him with Maracyn 2 and the tank eventually did cycle okay. In the smaller tank he almost never went to the surface for air. However, ever since I put him in the bigger, more spacious 36 gallon tank with two filters and a bubble wand, he has been going to the surface for air a lot. The tank cycled almost immediately because I used the filter, media and gravel from the old tank. Water parameters also seem both normal and consistent (see below). On the other forum, some people suggested it could be flukes, but this would be odd because Kaji acts very active and healthy and his gills are a normal pink-orange color when they open and don't seem to be moving rapidly. Also, I have never introduced other fish, live plants or live food into either of his aquariums. Today I just began treating the tank with prazipro just in case. So far, his behavior hasn't changed -- he's still both active and going to the top for air quite often. I'm completely stumped and would really appreciate any insight or advice people could give me. Thank you!
